The 2024 PGA TOUR golf season continues, with Quail Hollow Golf Club next on tap to host the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina, beginning Thursday. Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele, and Wyndham Clark headline among Wells Fargo Championship bets this week, as John Haslbauer provides his favorite picks among all the golf odds for this tourney. Below, you’ll find the best odds across betting sites for each player.

The perfect precursor to the second Major of the season next week, the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship returns for the second consecutive year as a Signature Event. This year, the field is concentrated to 69 of the PGA TOUR’s best. That comes with a rather large caveat, however, as arguably the two hottest players on the PGA TOUR – Scottie Scheffler and Ludvig Aberg – are absent. Nevertheless, the show goes on with much more of a “wide open” feel amongst contenders than we’ve seen on the biggest stages so far this season.

Below, we’ll go through my final Wells Fargo Championship bets. Click the odds anywhere in this article to place Wells Fargo Championship wagers. For a full breakdown of the tournament and course, visit my Wells Fargo Championship preview

HOW I BUILT MY Wells Fargo Championship BETTING CARD

At Quail Hollow, a very simple formula of driving distance, long iron approach prowess, and proven form on comparable long and difficult scoring venues have led to few surprises at this event historically. There are a select few skilled, in-form bombers who seem up to the task to slay one of the longest courses on the PGA TOUR in Quail Hollow Golf Club.

My gut instinct this week was to roll out a two-man card of Wyndham Clark and Ludvig Aberg, as both players fit the mold of in-form bombers with proven success on comparable long and difficult venues. Unfortunately Aberg was an early withdrawal on Monday, citing a lingering knee injuries he has opted to nurse precatonarily ahead of the PGA Championship. So as a Plan B, I searched the betting board for other candidates who fit a similar profile of strong course and comp course history.

From a unit allocation standpoint, it’s back to business as usual for my weekly stake at the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship.

Wells Fargo Championship BETS: OUTRIGHTS (3.5 UNITS)

Wyndham Clark

My Bet: +1700
Best Available Odds:

In one of the coziest victories of the 2023 season, Clark chose the Wells Fargo Championship as his official coming-out party this time last year. In the year that’s passed, he’s rapidly ascended to the No. 3 player in the world according to OWGR, with three PGA TOUR wins over that span. If we remove the hottest golfer since peak Tiger Woods from the equation, Clark would have two additional high-profile wins under his belt this season, as he finished runner-up to Scottie Scheffler at both the Arnold Palmer Invitational and THE PLAYERS. So, he should be licking his chops to add another win to his resume with Scheffler sitting out on the sidelines.

As evidenced by his comfy 4-stroke win at -19 last year, Clark’s driving distance, elite long iron play, and touch around the greens make him an ideal candidate to contend at Quail Hollow yet again in 2024.

Max Homa

My Bet: +2600
Best Available Odds:

The two-time Wells Fargo Championship winner has plenty of good vibes to draw from in his return to Charlotte this week. Only one of those wins came at Quail Hollow, but a T8 here in 2023 supports that his maiden 2019 victory was more than a one-time blip.

After a slow start out the gates in 2023, Homa seems to have finally found his footing, with six top-25s over his last 10 starts. That includes career best finishes of T8 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and T3 at The Masters, which suggests his game is trending well leading into yet another long and difficult venue at Quail Hollow.

Cameron Young

My Bet: +3500
Best Available Odds:

A major-like venue with stakes a notch below the pressure of winning an actual Major feels like the appropriate type of venue for Cameron Young to pick up his first career PGA TOUR win. And it would seem especially fitting for Young to pick up that first win in the state of North Carolina, where we went to college just a few years ago. The Wells Fargo Championship has been a career kickstarter for burgeoning stars like Max Homa and Wyndham Clark, so what better time than now for Cameron Young to finally convert one? As one of the longest drivers in this field, I expect Young to lean on his elite distance and ball-striking to separate from the field this week.

Corey Conners

My Bet: +6000
Best Available Odds:

Not exactly a prolific winner, Conners has sneakily found himself in contention often at big events on long and difficult courses, notching five top-20 finishes between The Masters and PGA Championship since 2020. We know we can expect consistency from Conners’ ball-striking, as he ranks top-15 in SG: OTT and top-5 in both SG: Approach and Prox: 175+. As always, his ability to contend will come down to his short game, however a T8 showing at this event last year goes to show his game profiles well to score at Quail Hollow.

Wells Fargo Championship BETS: FIRST-ROUND LEADER (0.5 UNITS)

Sepp Straka

My Bet: +4500
Best Available Odds:

A standout on Bermuda layouts in this region of the country, Straka has the premium skillset needed to make birdies in bunches that I always look for in a FRL candidate. Straka enters this week in excellent form off of three straight top-15 finishes and has shown flashes in difficult scoring conditions, finishing top-10 in two Majors last season.

Stephan Jaeger

My Bet: +5000
Best Available Odds:

Sneakily one of the longest drivers in this field, Jaeger’s distance should create some additional birdie-or-better opportunities on the par-5s this week. While a streaky and volatile birdie-maker, the FRL market seems to be the ideal place to find exposure to Jaeger this week, as his profile suits this course well despite the absence of any notable course history to show for it.

Cam Davis

My Bet: +7000
Best Available Odds:

After a sluggish start to 2024, it appears Davis has found his groove again with four top-20 finishes over his last seven starts. A skilled ball-striking with elite distance, Davis put his best skillsets on display two starts ago with a T12 at The Masters and is fully capable of getting out to a hot start at Quail Hollow.

Emiliano Grillo

My Bet: +9000
Best Available Odds:

I don’t think Grillo’s form is where it needs to be to contend for four rounds in a Signature Event, but his course history is as polished as any other player in this field, which tells me he has the potential to score well any given day. In a field of just 69 players, this stands out as a great value bet for a player who suits the course well.

Wells Fargo Championship BETS: PROPS (2.5 UNITS)

Full Tournament Matchup: Corey Conners > Stephan Jaeger

My Bet: -120

It would not surprise me if Stephan Jaeger plays well this week, but in a head-to-head matchup, there are just too many signs pointing me in Conners’ direction here. Conners carries one of the most consistently stable ball-striking baselines into this event, with positive SG: Ball Striking showings in each start he’s made since the 2023 Memorial Tournament.

If this becomes a long-iron contest, I’ll side with Conners in the head-to-head, as he ranks top-3 in Proximity: 175+.

Top-20 Finish: Taylor Pendrith

My Bet: +280
Best Available Odds:

I don’t often go straight back to a player immediately following a win, especially when it’s that player’s first career PGA TOUR win, but I get the sense that Pendrith still has a little more to prove after the CJ Cup Byron Nelson won virtually fell into his lap. Pendrith is a great fit for Quail Hollow with his elite driving distance and he picked up some valuable experience playing on these grounds at the 2022 Presidents Cup.

Top-20 Finish: Seamus Power

My Bet: +350
Best Available Odds:

With one of the most consistent resumes at Quail Hollow in this field, I’ll happily chase the course history narrative in a limited field that offers very little value in the placement betting market otherwise. Power is a perfect four-for-four in terms of made cuts at this event, with two top-20 finishes over his last three appearances at Quail Hollow.


My Pick: Wyndham Clark

I’m not going to overthink this one from an OAD standpoint. There’s no question Wyndham Clark’s game should translate well at Quail Hollow, as he demolished the field in lesser leading form here in 2023. One of the longest hitters on TOUR, I can think of few better venues for the rest of the season that cater more to his strengths than Quail Hollow. Considering I have already used Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele to this point, I’m rolling out the best man available with one of the highest purses of the season at stake.

If not Clark, I would also consider playing Max Homa, Rory McIlroy, or Cameron Young in OAD.
